just a quick selfie

but without looking into the camera, and holding a box with perfume of course! Trust me: It was not easy to get this shot done properly without somebody else holding the camera. The reason for this particular foto is: I was searching for a picture online and came upon a website, about myths and profile pictures, in the context of dating platforms, but I figured: Hey, there might be something in for me and maybe I can learn a bit about how to optimize my profile pictures here and there.
So I took this picture of me, without looking into the camera, because for men this works, it works less for women though (at least on dating platforms). But I should not smile, actually: Something to work on.

On a serious note: Online, your face is your capital. Or part of it. At least when promoting products or yourself or both.

  • I like this photo! :-)

  • I am so bad at taking selfies, always looking in the wrong place and lots of shots up my nose. :-0

    But like everything else on social media I am sure there is a psychology to photos. Fortunately I do not use dating websites. But your photo is cute!

  • ha, same thing here, Tara! And thank you.... there is a lot of psychology to photos/selfies and -especially for the youngsters- a lot of pressure, too. It is a tough competition out there. I am glad that I do not have to compete on dating platforms these days....
